home and she shared with us how she's trying to salvage groceries she had just purchased before the storm. >> my little make-shift cooler. at least i have soda and water on ice because the guy at wala got the last three bags of ice so, i'm out of luck. i just went shopping. so, i'm full. >> reporter: now, delaware county folks are venturing out. that's another reason the traffic is heavy here. many have been shut up inside their homes, not only in the dark but it was very hot, as you know. yesterday over 90 degrees. also they're coming out to get ice, to get food whatever they may need. now, we've been told by the power company that 72,000 people in this part of delaware county lost power during the height of the storm. we have seen power crews out working to restore the power. they're not sure yet how soon you'll have electricity at your home, but we met a guy who was pouring gasoline into his
generator. we're working on that for you at 11:30. live for now in brookhaven monique braxton, "nbc10 news." >> thank you. kind of a free-for-all in that intersection in brookhaven. many roads are still a mess as you just saw. there are issues with mass transit as well. let's get an update from nbc10 first alert traffic reporter jessica boying ingingboyington. >> in philadelphia around monument road. we have another set of downed trees, that's lower merion on 71st street blocking both sides there. still dealing with the debris on the new jersey turnpike, resulting in a speed restriction. down to 45 miles an hour on the new jersey turnpike between exit 3 and delaware memorial bridge. severely affecting mass transit this morning, septa has been suspended. fox chase resumed operation.
paoli/thorndale shut down. and new jersey transit is suspended between atlantic city and philly. and paco dealing with power outages there. vai? ? >> thank you jessica. and it is shaping up to be a pretty nice summer day out there today. lots of sunshine and low humidity. as we look live outside here at center city philadelphia. nbc10 first alert meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz here with the forecast. glenn, people dealing with the aftermath of last night's storm, but at least they have take nice day to do it. >> things are comfortable. nowhere near 95 degrees. nowhere near feeling like 101 like yesterday. blue skies. we don't have rain in the forecast until tomorrow night. but there is likely to be some more rain. it's a dry day today. there's nothing on radar. hardly any clouds in the sky.
but the next system is in illinois already. there's nothing severe but there may be some heavy rain in parts of the area. by tomorrow night. and this is what happened late yesterday. there's this line of thunderstorms. as it came through the philadelphia area see it started bowing, as we call it. and when you have a bow echo, see this again, a little bit rounded. the wind right at the bow there. that's the strongest wind. that's where most of the damage was. from chester county through delaware county through gloucester county and out toward ocean county. well, right now things are pretty quiet. 76 degrees, low humidity. it's nice and comfortable. and it's in the 70s even in southern delaware. so as we go through the day today, temperatures getting into the mid-80s but low humidity relatively warm. we have those showers coming in
tomorrow night, but also some rain affecting the weekend too. the forecast is coming up in just a few minutes. >> we'll see you then glenn. up next date with death. a date that could help with closure for so many victims and families as the formal sentencing is under way for the man convicted in the boston marathon bombings. plus policy change. the announcement coming from president obama today about how the u.s. government will deal with hostages and their families.
exciting new video from vatican city. pope francis posing for a picture with philadelphia delegation in st. peter's square including archbishop charles chaput and mayor michael nutter. making final preparations for the pontiff's visit to the world meeting of families in september. >> it's an unparalleled experience. i look at philadelphia as being the birthplace of the american family, but the entire world is now looking at philadelphia and with the papal visit, it's tremendously exciting. to have this kind of opportunity to represent the bank and philadelphia is unparallel. >> also on the agenda the delegation is attending a luncheon for international media. the goal to promote philadelphia as a tourist destination all over the world. of course you can count on nbc10 for the latest developments and plans for the world meeting of families in september. chris cato will be in italy all week long with the delegation, bringing us live reports.
meanwhile, back to the weather. right now this downed tree along city avenue is bringing traffic to a single lane at 71st street in philadelphia's overbrook section. traffic signal was brought to the ground after last night's powerful winds. well we had quite an active day yesterday, but we have the comfort returning during the day today. we have showers coming in tomorrow night, and we have rain coming in over the weekend. right now we have temperatures that are 76 degrees in philadelphia. and that's a whole lot cooler than yesterday. and we did get up to 95 yesterday. only about 87 degrees during the day today. it's 76 degrees right now with a northwest wind, dry wind.
it's dry and cool all over the northeast with that offshore wind. at the shore we have similar temperatures. now, this is the general trajectory of where the strongest winds were. and you can see what i was telling you earlier about this bow echo. as the storm got closer to philadelphia, it started to get more rounded. and right there, you can see that. that is generally where the worst damage was. the damage reports, especially start at chester county going across south philly. the airport got 72-mile-an-hour wind. that's the fourth biggest wind ever recorded in philadelphia and out to ocean county. well, we have dry air across the area now. there's the next area of showers in illinois. and that does look like it's going to be affecting us. certainly not today, not tonight, and not into tomorrow morning. but later tomorrow. so here we are during the day tomorrow. we start off with sunshine.
the clouds start to come in during the afternoon. and then here comes some showers, maybe even some thunderstorms, but it's relatively brief. it goes through thursday evening. we're left with generally dryer conditions during the day friday. it's not going to stay that way. we've got a storm developing back to the west. this happens to be the european computer model. not all the models are this pessimistic for the weekend, but this one has as an area of low pressure moving our way by saturday morning. we would have a wind coming in off the ocean to keep things cool. the storm tracks to our south which keeps the cool air in. we're talking about a rainy weekend if that scenario holds true. as we go through the day today, we'll be seeing a lot of sunshine a nice dry breeze high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s but it won't feel like it because of that low humidity.
the seven-day forecast, we've got a sunny start to tomorrow and then by evening, as you saw, some showers and even some thunderstorms. it could last into early friday morning. but most of friday looks dry and then saturday chilly and rainy and showers may linger into sunday as well. thank you, glenn. tonight you're being asked to brave the shave in honor of a tough little girl from our area. 7-year-old cameron mccarthy has been diagnosed with ewing sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. family and friends are rallying to help her win her fight. and here with me this morning, derek, cameron's first grade teacher at penhal elementary school and matthew mccarthy, cameron's older brother. tell me about cameron and what the school is doing to rally and help her out. >> cameron is a terrific little girl.

some european governments have. we have new information this morning about the death of freddie gray. autopsy results reveal more details about how he died while in custody of baltimore police. the report obtained by the baltimore sun says gray suffered a high-energy injury. he was arrested april 12th. he was severely injured while in police custody and died days later. the autopsy report suggests gray hit the wall of the police van as it changed directions. the medical examiner suspects gray may have tried standing up in the van but because his wrists and ankles were shackled he was at a greater risk of injury from being tossed around. while "the baltimore sun" obtained the opposite report they have not released it yesterday. maryland state attorney made this statement, i want to make it very clear that the state's attorney's office did not release the freddie gray autopsy report. as i have repeatedly stated, i strongly connecticut democrat anyone with access to trial
